I like to think of myself as a not-trends-driven woman. But they’re out there relentlessly competing for our attention among the seasonal classics. Trendy items affect our mind’s eye when we shop, whether retail or second-hand. We often modify trends to fit our own aesthetic, and eventually they make their way into our closets in some iteration.
Can we get an Amen or No, Thanks to some of the looks trending for Winter 2017/2018? No wrong answers, we like what we like and that’s that. : >
“Teddy” coats. These fuzzy jackets get a Yay from me. I love the feel of them, and I think I had one when I was 18. That I live in Florida has no bearing on me wanting one of these.
Fancy denim jackets. Another Yay for me. I’ve always owned a denim jacket, not the same one, for the last 45 years. I’m really attracted to the embroidered jacket trend, whether store-bought or DIY.
Faux fur toppers. These can be a simple vest, like below, or a fancy wrap. I don’t wear real fur, unless it’s vintage, but the new faux fabrics are so soft and yummy. Another Yay.
Huge sweaters. These are for sale at every price point, and there seems to be no limit to the amount of fabric! These are fun and trendy, but they don’t suit my small frame; I feel like I’m wearing a beach towel.
